View Full Version : DVD Drive no Show in My computer

02-10-2004, 10:47 PM

I have resurrected my old P11 and loaded Win98SE on it, I used a different CD writer attached to my P4 to load the machine and when time came to shift it to another room I removed my Matsushita DVD drive from my P4 and installed that in the PII.
On boot it is detected.
It is on it's own IDE cable and is set as a slave.
The drive has power and will spin up a disk if one is placed in the tray.
However, the B*&%$y thing doesn't show in My Computer therefore I can't access it to load any further software on the machine.
It doesn't not appear in the device manager in the System either.

I would like to use this drive in the PII as the P4 currently has my CD writer.

Any suggestions as to why I can't see the drive?

Try putting it on as a master / change the jumper and put it on MA, if its on its own IDE connection.

And change it to master in the BIOS.
